The U.S. Forest Service Eastern and Western Threat Centers’ ForWarn team is among the agency recipients of the Federal Laboratory Consortium for Technology Transfer (FLC) Southeast Region’s 2012 Partnership Award.

The award recognizes the collaborative efforts of team members from the Forest Service, NASA Stennis Space Center, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, and US Geological Survey to provide and enable a satellite-based forest disturbance monitoring system. Team members will be recognized during a March awards ceremony in Charleston, South Carolina.

In late December 2012, the FLC honored the ForWarn team at the national level with its 2013 Interagency Partnership Award, which recognizes outstanding collaborative work in technology transfer and is one of the highest honors from FLC.
